Implementing Innovation

We assist faculty, staff, and students in accelerating the transition of Intellectual Property (IP) from the University to commercialization and enable industrial research partnerships, IP management, proof-of-concept development, new venture incubation, and entrepreneurship training. 
Our mission aligns with UTRGV's mission in commercializing universities discoveries. 


UTRGV Mission statement reads 
"To transform the Rio Grande Valley, the Americas, and the world through an innovative and accessible educational environment that promotes student success, research, creative works, health and well-being, community engagement, sustainable development, and commercialization of university discoveries."

We're Here to Help

The process for developing and moving a new technology out of the University and into a commercial product requires input from both intellectual property (IP) and business professionals to understand the  scope and value of any new technology. This process is iterative, and success requires the creator’s  involvement well beyond the lab or workstation. Our office is here to help all parties navigate the process.
